In August this year (we expect) we will be launching our latest version of Dynamics AX, which is Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012.  Right now, customers and partners can download a virtual machine which has a beta image of the software installed.  This was the one created for Convergence which was in Atlanta, USA earlier this month.

Partners can go to the Launch Portal on PartnerSource to see lots of information about what's coming up and go here to download the new image.  Note that you will need Hyper-V to run this - which means Microsoft Windows Server 2008 R2 and a nice powerful laptop... or a server you can connect to.

Keen customers also have the same opportunity to download this on CustomerSource.  What's New training material has also been uploaded and there are even some videos to watch!
